This tenth edition of Principles of Clinical Electrocardiography by Goldman is little changed from the ninth edition. With few exceptions, the organization, structure, content, and illustrations are unchanged from previous editions.
The book is easy to read; the language is simple, concise, and uncluttered; and the diagrams and illustrative ECGs are generally of good or excellent technical quality. The text is profusely illustrated and is complete and current, though of necessity in a book of this type, many topics are given brief and sketchy treatment. Some discrepancies and unevenness in the quality and relevancy of the material covered are noted here and there. For example, a few paragraphs are given to the effects on the ECG of such drugs as emetine hydrochloride, phenothiazines, and daunorubicin hydrochloride and such conditions as malignancy and hypothermia, yet there is no discussion of the ECG in pulmonary embolism. Brief but adequate mentions are made
